“I never expected to hit the jackpot. I never thought I’d make it big," DeGrazia said.

One of the most famous artists in Arizona history is highly regarded, naturally, for his art. But he is widely known more because of his talent for and commitment to marketing his work.

Ted DeGrazia was born in 1909 in the Arizona mining town of Morenci. Journalists Jim and Marilyn Johnson chronicle DeGrazia’s life in their new book "DeGrazia: The Man and the Myths."
